The Wellingborough LGBT group needs your questions as they prepare to host a hustings event featuring those bidding to be the town’s MP.

The event is taking place on Friday (June 2) at Alma St Church Hall in Wellingborough from 7.30pm.

A group statement said: “This is likely to be the only opportunity for the people of Wellingborough and the surrounding areas to quiz all the candidates who want to be our MP.

“We have now heard from each candidate and all five have confirmed they will be attending, which is great news for our community.

“We are sorting out the format of the event now and as part of this we need your questions.

“So whether you have a question related to LGBT issues or one related to any general topics such as health, housing, social care, transport, defence, Brexit or any other relevant topic, please email me with your suggestions.

“The only rules are that you need to be in attendance next Friday to ask your question and that each questions should be asked to all candidates and not to specific candidates.

“Also please keep them clean and respectful.

“Please be aware that this is an open hustings for all across our community to attend and an important opportunity for us to see our prospective candidates in action.

“So bring your friends, family and colleagues.”
